Salma Hayek Is the Latest Actress to Share a Disturbing Story About Harvey Weinstein

Remind me:

Harvey Weinstein is an iconic film mogul who produced movies like “Pulp Fiction” and “Shakespeare in Love.” He’s now known as an alleged sexual predator who routinely harassed actresses and has been accused of raping multiple women, and the revelations about his behavior sparked a movement across Hollywood, politics and various other industries to expose sexual harassment and abuse.

What’s happening now?

Actress Salma Hayek is the latest to share her Weinstein story, writing a moving piece in the New York Times about her experience working with him on the film “Frida.”

“I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no,’” she wrote. “The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, ‘I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.’”

Glenn’s take:

Glenn noted that Hayek’s account probably won’t be the last we hear, and it’s definitely a terrifying example of how serious the allegations against Weinstein are.

“It is clear he made the most important experience of her career a living hell,” Glenn said. “Salma Hayek will not be the last person to add to the mountain of allegations against Weinstein.”

GLENN: “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.”

Those are the cruel words Harvey Weinstein reportedly said to Salma Hayek.

The actress is the latest and one of the most high-profile women to share her frightening experience with Weinstein.

In a shocking essay published by the New York Times, Hayek detailed her hellish encounters with the disgraced producer.

She met Weinstein when she approached his company Miramax to help finance and distribute her film, Frida.

He agreed, but his involvement came with a hefty price: her mental and physical wellbeing.

She claims that Weinstein repeatedly stalked her and asked for sexual favors.

When she declined his advances in private, he made a demand for a sex scene in the film with her co-star, Ashley Judd, who was also harassed by Weinstein. An emotionally battered Hayek begrudgingly agreed because the future of the film was at stake.

Frida went on to win Two Academy Awards.

But Hayek clearly lost when she partnered with Weinstein. After reading her essay, it’s clear he made the most important experience of her career a living hell.

Salma Hayek will not be the last person to add to the mountain of allegations against Weinstein, but her account is noteworthy because it draws the line between Weinstein and the other men accused of sexual misconduct. It’s clear Weinstein is in a league of his own.

GLENN’S THEORY: This is why Hunter Biden allegedly abandoned his laptop

We don't yet fully know why or how Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly was abandoned at a computer repair store. But, Glenn has a theory: did Hunter Biden purposely leave his computer — which contains countless materials harmful to his dad's campaign — to make it all stop? Hunter Biden has a troubled past — he has a history of alcohol and drug abuse, and it seems like Joe Biden has used his son for years to enrich the Biden family. So, Glenn thinks, maybe Hunter knew what he was doing…maybe it was a "self-sabotaging" cry for help. It's just a theory, but Glenn thinks it's a theory worth pursuing...

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.
